romney and paul ryan offering? >> what we will tell the american people on wednesday night is where we are as a country, where we need to go, how we rebuild an economy that makes the middle class secure. with great detail they will tell us what it will do for them in the next four years. >>gregg: chief political correspondent, carl cameron, joins us live from boston. >>carl: a lot of this is more than how they perform on stage and what they say. it depends on their demeanor with their personal likability and whether they can con an idea clearly and articulate and whether they can score points and criticize their opponents. there is a lot riding on it for mitt romney who has been trailing in the polls. in the national polls, it is a small margin but the battleground states there is cause if concern in boston. the republicans recognize that. romney will be in denver tomorrow until the debate open wednesday night. paul ryan shaped it this morning on fox news sunday. here is a sampling. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe th
tomorrow night of imcompetence. look, mitt romney, it's all on him. all on him. all president obama has to do is basically just be himself and not say anything, just repeat the same old thing. mitt romney has to convince the american people that going forward, he's a better alternative than the president. it's not going to be easy. so he's going to have to paint the president as an incompetent. this libya thing can be part of that, but certainly the economy, way more important to the folks than libya. but he can weave it. the second thing is that romney has got to kind of put aside his politician persona. i mean, he looks perfect, right? he looks like a president should look. but that's not working against him because people don't know who he is. he's got to find a way to say look, this is who i am. this is why i'm better. in very simple terms. it's daunting task for the governor. >> gretchen: yeah, it is. because if he comes across as sort of being in attack mode, which a lot of republicans want him to be, then the press might say, oh, wow. he really went too far. >> he can't care abou
best handle health care. on wednesday night it might be risky for romney not to take risks, but what can he do? he might add to his policies by embracing, say, breaking up the largest banks, the sound policy that would subvert the -- but not good venues for explaining anything, actually. but especially not new initiatives. and october is a time for summations to the jury, not new submissions of evidence. you agree? >> i agree with that completely. i think the idea of romney going out there and saying let's break up the big banks, i think it would not help him. i think his -- apart from what howard and john have said, i think his challenge is he's got to deal with this 47% problem. he's got to somehow walk back from that and convince people he actually cares about all of america. that's his job as well as humanizing himself. i think the moderator and president obama are going to be desperately trying to get this guy to be specific about what it is he wants to do. not only does he change positions, but right now, he won't say what he wants to do about tax loopholes, and medicare, and i
what's going on with the president? john sununu, great defender of presidential nominee mitt romney, he was on with hannity last night. he had this to say about the president's reaction. >> look, let me tell what you the big problem with this president is, in my opinion: he is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. when he doesn't go and attend 60% of the detailed presidential daily briefings that come from the c.i.a. and thinks he can just skim the summary paper on his ipad instead of sitting down and engaging in what i -- i was in a white house with george herbert walker bush. he took that brief every day. george w. bush took it every day and i believe that bill clinton took it every day. this president thinks he's smarter than those guys and he doesn't have to engage in the discussion. that's the most important half hour of the day for a president who has to protect the security of the united states. >> gretchen: it's interesting because when you ask people what is the most important role of the president of the united states, that's usually the answer that's given by historians
lane of attack that is going to work. jon: well, all right. nancy, mitt romney was so criticized in the media for coming out on the night the ambassador was killed and criticizing the administration's response to all of this. and yet this thing doesn't seem to be gaining any traction, why not? >> it's bizarre to me because obviously the president and his administration and his campaign have so much invested in the narrative somehow the global war on terrorism is over that they are willing to discount and seemed to downplay the shocking and tragic events we have seen. i think what played out over the last week or two and particularly was noticeable yesterday or within the last 48 hours that mitt romney was right in his characterization what had happened. let's look at the case. we had the embassy in cairo stormed. the u.s. flag taken down and al qaeda's flag put in its place. we had a u.s. ambassador, two former navy seals and a former us air forstmann who was kidnapped and assassinated of the this is the type of thing that demands outrage and a strong response on the part of our
